Solarfun expands U.S. marketing and customer support team


Solarfun is to expand its U.S.-based marketing and customer support team in order to boost its North American presence and supplement current staff. Matt Miller has been appointed as regional manager covering the southwestern U.S. and Graham Landry has been appointed as regional manager in the west.

Dr. Peter Xie, president and CEO of Solarfun said, “The U.S. and China markets will be among the most important growth markets for years to come. We are committed to capture an increasing share and are building momentum in the United States as we expect to ship 30 to 50MW to the United States in the second half of 2010. Our plans call for a more than doubling in shipment volumes to the United States in 2011 to 100 to 150MW. Our pipeline of business opportunities is encouraging, and these new senior hires will allow us to serve our broadening customer base.”
